location iconCyclops Cave in Ayia Napa

Not far from Protaras, the Cyclops Cave is the legendary den of the mythical man-eating one-eyed Cyclops Polyphemus who trapped Odysseus and some of his men on their way back home from the Trojan War. Odysseus eventually blinded the cyclops with a wooden stake and escaped unharmed, but he did lose some of his men.

Visiting the Cyclops Cave is a unique way to combine nature and legend in a memorable hike. It is an underground cave not too hard to explore. The setting of the cave is charming too – on the coast of Konnos Bay, within the Cape Greko National Forest Park, overlooking the sea and providing beguiling views, especially at sunset. While hiking you can admire both the landscape and the flora, which consists of endemic plants, including acacia trees, coastal boxthorn, prickly burnets, juniper trees, and coastal boxthorn.

Cyclops Cave is on the way to a fantastic diving site – so you may meet many divers that visit it before or after exploring the underwater wonders of the bay. The beautiful Konnos Beach is about 700 meters west of the cave.

More Trips & Excursions

Cactus Park
Officially the Ayia Napa Park of Mediterranean Plants, Cactus and Succulents, the Ayia Napa Cactus Park is worth a day trip from Protaras. It is next to the Ayia Napa International Sculpture Park and Open Sculpture Museum – so you can see both in one trip.
 
Dherynia Village
Dherynia is a charming village in the Famagusta district of Cyprus. It is well worth a day trip, considering that it boasts many attractions, including an outdoor folk-art museum at the heart of the settlement – at Demetri Liberti 2. The Deryneia Folkloric Museum, in a house opposite the Open Air Traditional Folk Art Museum, documents aspects of lifestyle in an old traditional residence.
 
Sculpture Park
One of the most fascinating things to see when you vacation in Protaras, and a short drive from Leonardo Crystal Cove Hotel & Spa by the Sea, the Sculpture Park in Ayia Napa is a premiere in the Famagusta Free Province. It hosts works by artists participating in the Ayia Napa Municipality International Sculpture Symposium meetups between 2014-2017 – both Cypriot and international talent.
 
Medusa Boat Trips
Medusa Cruises offers a variety of boat trips and tours. They do, however, have a daily boat tour in the summer leaving at 10:45 a.m. from the Pernera Fishing Shelter in the Protaras Harbour. Besides the scheduled daily trips, they also offer sunset cruises, fishing trips, and private charters for events like hen or stag parties, weddings, birthdays, and other happy occasions.
 
Ocean Aquarium
The Ocean Aquarium is an exotic destination where adults and children alike can observe a variety of animals in a fascinating natural setting.
 
Thalassa Municipal Museum
Right in the centre of Ayia Napa, a short drive from Protaras, the Thalassa Municipal Museum opened its doors in 2005. It is a maritime museum that documents the role, importance, and impact of the sea on the island of Cyprus.
